The Folsom Museum is a local history museum in Folsom, New Mexico. It is best known for showcasing the history of the area, which may be a very small town (population: 80), but is actually rich in history and heritage.

Established in 1966, the Folsom Museum houses information about the Folsom Man Archaeological Site. This site was a former marsh-side kill site or camp tens of thousands of years ago, as proven by the bison remains found in the area. It became an archaeological site in 1926 and established the existence of the Folsom Man.

Aside from this, the Folsom Museum also exhibits several artifacts and historic objects that tell of the establishment of the area. The museum is open 7 days a week during the summer months and on weekends in May and September.
